Ezekiel 16:37-44 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
37 therefore I am going to gather all your lovers, with whom you found pleasure, those you loved as well as those you hated. I will gather them against you from all around and will strip1 you in front of them, and they will see all your nakedness.2 38 I will sentence you to the punishment of women who commit adultery and who shed blood;3 I will bring upon you the blood vengeance of my wrath and jealous anger.4 39 Then I will hand you over5 to your lovers, and they will tear down your mounds and destroy your lofty shrines. They will strip you of your clothes and take your fine jewelry and leave you naked and bare.6 40 They will bring a mob against you, who will stone7 you and hack you to pieces with their swords. 41 They will burn down8 your houses and inflict punishment on you in the sight of many women.9 I will put a stop10 to your prostitution, and you will no longer pay your lovers. 42 Then my wrath against you will subside and my jealous anger will turn away from you; I will be calm and no longer angry.11 43 " 'Because you did not remember12 the days of your youth but enraged me with all these things, I will surely bring down13 on your head what you have done, declares the Sovereign LORD. Did you not add lewdness to all your other detestable practices?14 44 " 'Everyone who quotes proverbs15 will quote this proverb about you: "Like mother, like daughter."
